    The misconduct allegations against Steve Wynn have some wondering if it will affect the Wynn Boston Harbor, the luxury resort and casino under construction in Everett.

    Massachusetts gambling regulators held a public hearing on Thursday to decide if casino mogul Steve Wynn should be removed from the license his company received to operate a resort casino under construction near Boston.

    The regulators did not reach a decision and will meet again in two weeks.

    In the letter to the gaming commission made public on Thursday, an attorney for Wynn wrote that his client has divested from "all ownership interests" in Wynn Resorts.

    Wynn resigned as chairman and chief executive of the company in February after sexual misconduct allegations against him surfaced.

    Attorney Brian Kelly argues in the letter that Wynn should no longer be subject to a review of his ``suitability'' for the Wynn Boston Harbor Project.
